You couldn't fit 165 bushels on a 42? And only 150 pots? wow.....
Seventy Five BU stacked nice on a 44' then 15 or so in the cabin
Barrels worked better.
25 barrels with the fourth bushel per barrel turned upside down on top
still equaled 25 barrels.
Our best day was on the FV Risky Business in the Atlantic Ocean. Hit a body of Ocean Sooks & Caught 25 barrels
in 2hrs , with a pair of 8 foot dredges "tuned by yours truly" ! Four 10 min licks and we were done. Hardest part was to get crabs out of the dredges they were stuffed 26 bu / lick clean clear Ocean Sooks.
Most rewarding time was Dec of 84, first in VA of 200 to catch limit on the FV Four C's with a pair of 6 footers.
Ran out of Little Creek in Norfolk, Va in 26 ft of water.........
